Oh, no, it's never retaliatory.

Faculty advisor to the college newspaper loses her job. Admin says it's because of too many errors by her all-student staff and not the many articles criticizing the college prez. Fired for student mistakes? We're all doomed then.

It should be noted she only lost her job as the paper's advisor. She is still teaching at the university, but won't be given any journalism classes in the near future.

My college paper was financially independent from the university. They don't even use university facilities anymore because they found the working hours too restrictive. It is a relationship I highly recommend.

"Bosley rebutted the two reasons she was given for not being renewed as newspaper adviser — that the paper contains too many errors and that student staff, because they use Macintosh computers, are not being prepared for the real world."

Sounds retaliatory to me.

Yeah, god forbid we should ever let students make *mistakes* eh?

As for the use of Macs not providing a "real world" experience, let's ask Portland State University...
